General

Situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Kings Camp reflects the charm and romance of a colonial past in a pristine corner of unspoilt Africa. Kings Camp is situated facing an open savanna plain with a waterhole, which is frequented by a wide variety of wildlife, day and night.

The eleven generously spaced thatched colonial suites luxuriously equipped with romantic soft cascading mosquito nets, remote controlled air-conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, Victorian ball-and-claw bath, indoor and outdoor double shower, fully stocked mini-bar and private verandah with hammock, all combine to make Kings Camp the ultimate in luxury accommodation. Dark tones of wood and thatch offset the natural colours of the bushveld.

For your comfort and convenience, other room amenities include robes, mosquito repellent, an umbrella, hairdryer and a torch. Your suite is also equipped with its own safe and telephone.

Kings Camp offers a number of very comfortable living areas for you to just sit back, relax and soak up the tranquility of the African bush. A thatched viewing deck overlooking a very active waterhole and an open plan lounge, and bar are the ideal place to see out the heat of the day, while sipping an ice cold cocktail. Alternatively, a dip in our swimming pool is maybe a better option for some.

Our spacious dining room offers stunning views of the bushveld, while enjoying the sumptuous meals offered at Kings Camp.

A library full of verse and History awaits those yearning for knowledge of the African continent, filled with a collection of fictional and non-fictional books. It offers a setting of peace and tranquility, where you are welcome to browse through various books and novels. For those wanting to keep in touch with family members back home, there is a desktop with wireless internet connection available in the library 24 hours. A television is also available for those wanting to keep up to date with the latest news or sports game.

Our traditional boma is a truly memorable way to experience an evening under the African night sky. Fine cuisine and wines can be sampled while sitting near a warm crackling fire. On arrival at the boma, you will be met by your ranger, who will be on hand to greet you with a drink of your choice, while guests meet around the fire to tell of exciting adventures had on the game drive that afternoon.

End off the evening with a sumptuous dessert, and nightcap before bidding farewell to the simmering fire for the calling of your suite.

During the day, guests are welcome to browse through our well-stocked and air-conditioned curio shop, where you can select gifts and African memorabilia for your friends and family back home. The shop is stocked with an assortment of beautiful safari gear as well as local arts and crafts.

Head Chef, Himler Dorfling who has been at Kings Camp since 2002, is on hand to create a variety of wholesome and satisfying dishes, which gives each and every guest a taste into the finest in African ingredients and decadent flavours. Himler’s attention to detail and fine finishes complete the experience, and are a highlight of your luxury safari experience at Kings Camp.

Breakfast and lunch are served in the dining room. No dinner will be the same at Kings Camp. From dining under the stars in the heart of the bush, or in our traditional boma, to fine service dinners in our dining room, or in the garden under a large knobthorn tree, alongside the swimming pool, overlooking the spot lit waterhole.

A perfect end to the perfect safari experience – a private dinner on the verandah of your suite is offered to couples wanting to spend time together in privacy.
